    New to me welding table

    Bought this table at an auction near me. 4x8x1/2" top with 3 1/2" x 1/4" legs and rails. Picked it up for $175. Just need to clean it up a bit and weld on some casters as I need to be able to move it. It was a lot of fun getting it off the trailer into the garage. I also need to stay away from these auctions...LOL

    With cost of steel today I think you got a good buy. Look around the web and find the ones with steel wheels and zerks. It's what I put on mine and love 'em. If your backs like mine you might think about adding some length to the legs. My table is about 36" high. I made square pads with matching bolt holes to the casters, welded the pads on and bolted up the casters.

    Nice! I have been running 2 caster, 2 fixed with urethane tires. It has held in my daily use shop for 20 years.

    x3 on the steel castors with grease fittings.... I have to fixed ones at one end, and a peg to catch the floor jack on the other. Stays put when I'm working and cuts your wheel expense in half.

    Re: New to me welding table

    Just picked up the steel wheels.
    This is supposed to be a welding table but it looks like they had the rookie do some of this..
    Couple other things I picked up at the auction..
    Drill press, so happy to find out it was 1 phase-220. Don't need a phase converter now.
    Budgit 2 ton lift with power trolley. It was $20 but way more than I need... just no one out bid me.. looks like off to e-bay..

    For $20 I’d keep the hoist. Nice drill press too.

    Nice deal. As for the hoist, if it's single phase it should sell pretty quick. I would put it in Facebook Marketplace and Craiglist too.
    Facebook Marketplace is really becoming popular. You can see the sellers or buyers profile and usually location.

    I agree. I have a bad habit of keeping cool stuff I got for a great price.

    If you donít need it SELL it and use the money for something that you can use.

    @billwood I donít know your shop situation but you could also consider using a pallet jack to move your table







    You would only require crossmembers connecting the legs.

    I wish I had more room!!!
    I made a 26x40 garage. The 2 gable end doors need to be available for our cars..at least my wife's. Condition of the build..LOL
    The end side bay is multi use with a 2 post car lift that doubles as work area. Need to move equipment to the sides when using the lift. The new table will need to swing around a corner which makes a pallet jack tough.
    Liking your shop, very nice!!
